Should I Fix Computer Problems by Myself or Get Expert Help?

Should I fix computer damages by myself or not?

If you are thinking about fixing your computer on your own, I highly recommend giving this article a quite read. I’ll be going over most of the basics and dos and dont’s…. All in under 600 words! Before I get to deep in this article I would first want to say that if your problem is centred around a click that you hear coming from inside the case I recommend you seeing your local computer repair company.

Your information is at risk of being lost due to hard drive failure when you start hearing clicks from the inside. And if you have a computer failing to boot normally, go see your local computer repair company because computers that fails to go into Windows startup page is having a problem which typically cannot be resolved by some of the most gung-ho do it yourself kind of guy.

Computer Repair processes: Should I fix computer by myself or get an expert?


What can you do on your own? Fix computer issues? or what?

Memory problems, viruses (sometimes), various software problems, and replacing failed hardware.

If your computer is failing to turn on properly, it is suggested to check the hardware first and foremost. This is done easily by opening up the computer and checking the inside. I would start by removing all memory sticks, DDR Memory sticks are long and held in place by 2 clips which have to be moved away from the sticks. In order to safely remove the memory. If my description isn’t accurate enough, go ahead and go to Youtube and check a video to see how it’s done.

When done checking memory, I would take out the PCI or AGP video card and then try turning the computer on to see if it works properly without the card. And if the computer turns on properly, it would be pretty safe to say that the video card was the problem. If the computer is still non-responsive as before than the problem hasn’t been resolved.

This is more or less as far as you would be able to go on your own. Anything else you would want to test requires you to have a spare part in order to make sure that the part removed was defective. And purchasing spare parts puts you at risk of buying something you won’t need in the end. If you are unable to get it to turn on by this point, it might be time to see the experts, like us at USA Computer Store.

If it’s a virus that has you down, fear not I have just the solution for you. You will need another computer and a USB flash drive (aff). You have to go online with your computer and download Malware Bytes. This handy little program is excellent at eliminating viruses and providing you with excellent on the fly security. Then copy and paste Malware Bytes on to your USB and connect it to the infected computer. Go ahead and start the program and run the scanner, the scanner should pick up and disable current viruses you have causing problems.

If Malware Bytes were to fail to completely remove the infection, then other measures need to be taken. A more in depth scan and analysis needs to be made in order to make sure a computer is properly cleaned. And if you feel like you’re the man for the job, I urge you to be careful. There are lot of fake antivirus removal software online and trying to use the wrong one would only cause your problem to worsen. You might even render the computer incapable of proceeding into windows or you might prevent yourself from using the computer at all by deleting a required file.

If you have a broken laptop screen, that should pose no problem at all as long as your equipped with a screwdriver and replacement screen. All you need to do really is remove the laptop’s front bezel and then the inner screws that attach the screen to the hinge. Once the screen is loose from the hinges to ahead and disconnects the cable behind the screen with care. Pulling to fast and too hard would potentially damage and rip the cables within. This damage would make fixing things a whole lot harder. In any case, be careful and take your time.

  1. Thanks for this informative article, in addition to this one. There’s nothing wrong in fixing your own laptop if you knew replacing some parts will be much cheaper then go for laptop replacement parts and look for a good store or sites that offer laptop parts, but if it is just the same buying a new one. I recommend to buy a new one.
